Ruth with Cigarette 1
Julian Opie, born in 1958, is a British artist who is one of the rising stars of the international contemporary art market. He uses computerized technology to reduce photographs into figurative reproductions characterized by flat areas of color, minimal detail and cartoon-like thick black lines. This is a rare artist's proof, aside from the main edition of 50, of Ruth with Cigarette 1 and is an iconic Opie. Signed and numbered 'AP 6/11' by the artist on the reverse, this work is beautifully framed by John Jones in London and was originally acquired from Alan Cristea gallery. The work comes framed in a simple metal frame, as designed by the artist.
